F1 fans can catch the car launch on the team’s virtual launch platform. The team has worked hard to give the best seat in the house to witness the launch of their 2021 challenger – AMR21. The platform will also include curated content that starts at 12:00 noon GMT before the official launch begins at 3:00 PM GMT.

To be a part of the unlock the vault campaign, one had to sign up for the same. However, if you could not do that, you can still watch it on Sky Sports F1 at 3 PM GMT. Additionally, Aston Martin’s social media accounts and the official YouTube channel are likely to broadcast the reveal.

Aston Martin’s highly anticipated launch

Racing Point, the newly rebranded Aston Martin, sported the pink color last season owing to their primary sponsors, BWT. However, this season around, the team signed Cognizant as their primary sponsor and seemed ready to sport the green color once again.

But with just a month left, Aston Martin announced a partnership with BWT as well. This means that the look and the feel of the team will be different. The livery will focus on subtle BWT brand accents as well.

What to expect from Aston Martin this season?

Aston Martin finished their last season at P4 as the team missed out on the top-three position with a small margin. McLaren beat the team by seven points as they took over Racing Point in the last season of the race.

The team has clarified their goal this season to focus and break into the climb ranks on the championship table. They have Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll driving their Mercedes-powered car to reach that goal.

The competition will be tough, as their closest competitor will also dawn a similar power unit.
